OT Why trailer tires, and not passenger or LT????

My trailer is going to need some new tires soon. It currently has some Carlisle trailer radials size 205/75/R15 load range B. I would like to get some new tires with a higher load range. Why do I need trailer radials on a trailer? Why can't I just use some passenger car or light truck radials in a similar size? Some please explain the need for trailer radials versus regular radials?

Thanks,
Tom

Depends on what kind of trailer you are talking about. My Packmule that is made to be towed behind a Jeep uses the same type and size tire as my Jeep.
